National Emerging Leadership Summit

July 16-18, 2019: The 2019 National Emerging Leadership Summit
Location: Washington D.C.

The 10th annual National Emerging Leadership Summit (NELS) for Health and Aging Services Executives will be held in Washington, D.C. from July 16-18, 2019. The three-day summit, unique in its kind, is geared towards the enrichment of leadership skills for emerging health service executives working in skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers, continuing care retirement communities, life plan communities, rehabilitation hospitals, home- and community-based services, and more. Summit participants will enjoy an engaging, interactive experience that is focused on hearing their voice and helping them grow professionally, all while crafting solutions to improve the field of health and aging services and the profession of administration and leadership therein. Sponsors for this year’s Summit include ACHCA, NAB, AHCA/NCAL, Argentum, LeadingAge, and NIC, as well as several university partners. We are grateful to our wonderful Summit partners and sponsors for their support to make NELS an exciting event each year.

The complete Summit package includes approximately 19 CE credits for administrators from the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB), admission to all speaker events and presentations, breakfast and lunch each day, a reception with past NELS attendees and leaders in health and aging services, and a unique Washington, D.C. group event and dinner one evening.
